The Chicago White Sox might have to pay up big in order to land a player like this.

Landing one of the best players on the Boston Red Sox would certainly cost a lot. That is the case even though there is a good chance that he is only a 2022 rental. With that, the White Sox might want to offer him an extension to stay with them forever if they made a deal like this.

Losing both Andrew Vaughn and Oscar Colas would certainly hurt in the long term but it could be what helps this team get over the edge this year. Their championship window is only going to be open for so long so they might as well try to take advantage.

They would be adding Vaughn into their 2022 starting lineup which wouldn’t fully replace Bogaerts but he’d be good enough for the team to claim that they haven’t given up on the year yet. There is also a really good chance that Alex Cora would be much smarter with his usage.

The White sox landed Colas in international free agency this winter but we knew it was coming for over a year. It was one of the worst-kept secrets in all of baseball for all of that time. He is someone that could provide high trade value at this point in his development. You just never know what either of these guys can turn into offensively.
